Without seeing your son, I cannot say for sure that he will be totally well. However, a 1.8 mm defect in the muscular septum, or wall, between the two ventricles is not only small but also has an excellent chance of closing by itself. That is it likely a relatively small defect means that your son should not have any symptoms from the defect. However, if he does demonstrate getting out of breath or getting sweaty with feeds, you should see your pediatric cardiologist to determine whether your son has congestive heart failure.
